Academy of Community Theatre (ACT II)

To serve the young actor, the local schools, and the community

with wholesome, educational, high-quality theatre.

The Academy of Community Theatre (ACT II) is a non-profit theatre designed to bring literature to life through the magic of theatre with wholesome, educational, high-quality productions for local schools and the community. We also provide young actors with a safe environment where they can grow in their character and talent.

All of our plays are based upon literature so that the school children can read the book and learn from it at school, then attend our show and watch the book come alive on stage.  School children and families attending our shows laugh and cheer as they are immersed in the story. 

ACT II Core Values: 

  • Provide a wholesome environment that is safe for the actor to develop 
  • Produce high quality, professional-level shows that display the excellence of theatre
  • Bring literature to life through main stage productions performed for local schools and the community
  • Keep our productions affordable for schools and the community to attend
  • Create a vision for the power of the arts to educate, build character, and personally transform both the actors involved and the audience

Join The Academy of Community Theatre (ACT II) as they bring C.S. Lewis’ classic tale to life.  Set in the land of Narnia, ACT II weaves together drama, dance, and sword-fighting to recreate the magic and mystery of Aslan, the great lion, his struggle with the White Witch, and the adventures of four children who inadvertently wander from an old wardrobe into the exciting, never-to-be-forgotten Narnia. This story of love, faith, courage, and giving, with its triumph of good over evil, is a true celebration of life.
